5G Slicing - from planning to operation
Contents: As we move to 5G with increasing traffic in our networks we want to make the best use of the NFVi and DC hardware. The software defined infrastructure, SDI describes how, with the help of the Intel Rack Scale, we can by using software define and scale compute, storage and networking independently, while making use of excisting hardware from different vendors.
Speaker: Ulf Jönsson, Product manager, Cloud & NFVi, Digital services, Ericsson
Contents: As cloud native applications such as the new 5G core are introduced the NFVi needs to be evolved to cater for containerized applications. We believe Kubernetes will be the most commonly used platform and in this presentation we will outline how the Ericsson NFVi will be evolved to manage both VM’s and containers at the introduction of cloud native applications.
Speaker: Ulf Jönsson and Francois Lemarchand, Product management, Cloud & NFVi, Digital services, Ericsson
Content: In the telco cloud there will be a common NFVi, NFV infrastructure for all or many applications. This will impose the need for a new way to operate the network in a more horizontal way, which also requires new KPI’s and skillsets. This transformation is not easy and we will present different alternatives based on operator strategies as well as experiences from leading operators.
Speaker: Dileep Saxena, Principal consultant, Digital services consulting, Ericsson
Contents: The state of the NFV deployments today and lessons learned from leading operators to date.
What are the next steps to get the NFV platforms ready for 5G cloud native applications?
Speaker: Jan Häglund, Head of portfolio and R&D, Digital Services, Ericsson
Contents: The NFV & 5G platform will require orchestration of both user services and network resources and configurations. To achieve the benefits
Automation will be required to replace todays manual work. This will outline the Ericsson dynamic orchestration as a complete solution for full life cycle management of products and services.
Speaker: Marton Sabli, Head of orchestration solutions, Digital Services, Ericsson
Speakers: Steven Davies, Jonas Benson, Denys Miranda

Speakers: Johan Wallin, Victor Ferraro and Lars Mollberg
This session will look at the major trends of network evolution to 5G core, and its central role in creating a powerful network platform. Understand how it differs from the 4G Evolved Packet Core and how the new core architecture for 5G is being standardised. Johan Wallin, Victor Ferraro, and Lars Mollberg will guide you through the major trends of the network evolution and will introduce Ericsson Dual Mode Core as the single cloud native solution for all devices & accesses.
Speakers: Prajwol Kumar Nakarmi, Kenneth Manner
During this session Prajwol Kumar Nakarmi and Kenneth Manner will discuss security vulnerability and the rapidly changing threat landscape, as security becomes a key focus for service providers and end users. This webinar will provide an overview of the five core properties that contribute to the trustworthiness of the 5G system: resilience, communication security, identity management, privacy and security assurance. Discover how security and privacy are built in to 5G as standard, and how these capabilities can be monetised and automated.
Speakers: Victor Ferraro, Goran Hall
Understand how to evolve today’s 4G network to 5G and how to manage the transformation in an efficient and cost-effective way. Join Victor Ferraro and Goran Hall and see what the different migration scenarios are and what steps shall be taken towards a target Dual Mode Core cloud native implementation, enabling new network capabilities that allow you to release the full potential of new 5G-enabled use cases. Discover the deployment flexibility, full interworking with legacy networks and smooth evolution to 5GC with the Ericsson Dual Mode Core.
Speakers: Henrik Basilier, Gianluca Ruggieri, Pietro Zolzettich
Meeting the needs of multiple use cases, across multiple industries implies new levels of complexity. Network slicing is a new paradigm and introduces a completely new way of specifying services and delivering them in a flexible, agile and automated way. Join Henrik Basilier, Gianluca Ruggieri and Pietro Zolzettich to see how the new capabilities of network slicing, dynamic orchestration and automation based on artificial intelligence and machine learning address the challenges and maximise the full business potential of 5G.
Speakers: Joao Monteiro, Carlos Bravo
Distributed cloud is going beyond edge computing. For this webinar, Joao Monteiro and Carlos Bravo will discuss topics on where the edge is and how it relates to the rest of the network. We will cover the concept of deploying a UPF close to the network edge facilitating local breakout for security, resiliency, or low latency, and how to bring a secure landing zone for applications that will benefit from that distribution. Join us for this important 5G evolution topic and discover how to enable new use cases associated with 5G.
